Biomineralization Glomerula piloseta (Sabellidae), longitudinal section of the tube, aragonitic spherulitic prismatic structure IUPAC definition Mineralization caused by cell-mediated phenomena.[a] Biomineralization is the process by which living organisms produce minerals, often to harden or stiffen existing tissues. In terms of taxonomic distribution, the most common biominerals are the phosphate and carbonate salts of calcium that are used in conjunction with organic polymers such as collagen and chitin to give structural support to bones and shells. The structures of these biocomposite materials are highly controlled from the nanometer to the macroscopic level, resulting in complex architectures that provide multifunctional properties. Biological roles Biominerals perform a variety of roles in organisms, the most important being support, defense and feeding.

MINING FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND JOB CREATION Proposals by Organised Labour to the Mining Summit Held on 25-26TH February 2000, Pretoria This document has been developed by trade unions which came together to discuss our contribution to the Mining Summit. Three of the unions already constitute a Mining Labour Caucus that represent the organised workers in tripartite institutions established under the Mine Health and Safety Act. Our mandate arises from existing policy positions and reflects the widest possible consensus that could be reached by the unions sponsoring this document. The South African unemployment rate is one of the highest in the world. A historic lack of investment in education and training of South African labour force resulted in the under utilisation of this valuable resource. Some of the key causes of the high levels of unemployment and poverty include: The development of apartheid capitalism which depended on a racially marginalised and exploited workforce to secure profits.

Zaruma | Dynasty Metals and Mining Inc. The Zaruma Project is located in the central to north-central part of the Portovelo-Zaruma gold mining district in southern Ecuador, in which the total historic gold production from high grade quartz vein systems was estimated to be approximately 4 to 5 million ounces. The hills of Zaruma and Portovelo have been mined for gold and silver for centuries. The Incas had been extracting gold and silver from the area with hydraulic mining of the oxidized parts of veins when Mercadillo, one of Pizarro´s force, followed the Rio Amarillo River upstream and encountered the Inca mine and founded the town of Zaruma in 1549. Exploitation of the Zaruma and Portovelo districts continued during the time of Spanish colonization until 1870 when an Ecuadorian-Chilean company was established. In 1880, Grant Zaruma Company, registered in England, bought controlling shares of the Ecuadorian-Chilean mining company.
